Best Team Building Activities in Miami in 2019

Best Team Building Activities in Miami in 2019

We spend most of our lives at work. Whether we realize it or not, our coworkers and workplace environment plays a significant role in our productivity and general wellbeing. That’s why putting time and effort into effective team building activities and events is worth the investment.

Maybe your office consists of several different skill sets or various backgrounds, or you already have a small tight-knit team and just want to let your hair down. Whatever your reasons for building increased camaraderie, there are plenty of team building activities Miami has to offer. If you are looking for Miami team building events, we have just the list for you. Some games can be played anywhere in Miami and others are specific to The Go Game venues.

Find common ground

A great and easy way to build solidarity in your team is through ice breakers. Playing a game of “Who done it” is a fun way to find out interesting facts about your teammates. Each member of the team takes a notecard and writes something interesting they’ve done or experienced and places all cards in a hat or bowl and shake them up.

Once all the notecards are mixed together, each person will draw one and read it out loud. If they manage to pull their own card, they have to pull another and guess “who done it,” while explaining why that person was chosen. The team member only has three chances to identify the individual or the guess is open to the rest of the group.

Play human Bingo

Who doesn’t love Bingo? Our thoughts exactly. Playing with people instead of Bingo cards sounds even more fun.

Using Bingo cards or a 5 x 5 grid that resembles a Bingo card, that includes general or specific experiences or hobbies, each person must go and talk with other teammates to find out who is connected to each qualifier. The first person to get five in a row either diagonally, vertically, or horizontally, wins. Be warned that this game requires a big enough place to allow movement and loud cheering.

Blind portrait

This game creates quick bonds and plenty of laughs. In groups of two, teammates sit across from each other with a pen and paper. Both players will draw portraits of one another, without looking down at the paper or lifting their pen. Sounds fun right?

The best part of this game is when everyone puts their pens down to share their Picassos and has a good laugh. The players can even sign the portraits and add a few positive qualities about their counterparts.

The Game Show

Brought to you by The Go Game in Miami, The Game Show is a fun indoor team building experience that will have everyone fully engaged. This customizable live game experience is a mixture of “Family Feud” and “Minute to Win It.”

A Go Game team member acts as an emcee and includes versions like “The Price is Right” and “Jeopardy”. The game comes with buzzers, giant screens, fun props, and a humorous host.

Secret Agent Man

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to be a secret agent? Well, now you have an opportunity to play out your fantasies of being a spy with the affordable Go Game app that requires a secret code. Your team will crack codes, solve puzzles, and discover hidden hints to solve the mystery. The best part is that it is completely flexible, so you can play this game anywhere!

For the games that are mobile, there is a plethora of available venues in Miami that are perfect to play in. Just to name a few, the best venues include Coral Gables and Brickell. Other corporate team building Miami venues where these games can be played include Briza on the Bay, South Florida Event Venues, and the Moore Building.

Just don’t forget to bring your game supplies to play Human Bingo and Blind Portrait. These are perfect for any size group and are centrally located to great food. And who doesn’t love good food?

How to Plan Your Miami Bachelorette Party

He finally put a ring on it, and the date has been set! It’s time to grab your girl squad and celebrate! What better place to enjoy your last moments of singleness than in the party city — Miami?

There’s no party like a Miami bachelorette party, and we are going to help you do just that. What’s that, you say? Where to start planning for a Miami Beach Party? Not to worry, we have you covered. Grab your favorite adult beverage, and pull up a chair. We have a lot to discuss.

The key to planning the best Miami bachelorette party is, well, Miami, of course. Next, making sure to plan in advance and establishing her comfort levels, are both equally important when organizing for an unsuspecting bride to be. Remember, we want her to let loose and not embarrass herself. Finding subtle ways to uncover what she wants and what she’d like to avoid in a bachelorette celebration may take some sly detective work, but it’s worth it.

First things first

You want this Miami beach party to be seamless and without a hitch. The best way to ensure that this happens is to plan, plan, plan. Starting as early as at least three months in advance will give you a little wiggle room for any unexpected hiccups, and will guarantee everyone’s availability for the set date.

Once you’ve set a date, make sure that the timing works for everyone. If you know some invitees will be in the area a few weeks before the wedding day, having the bachelorette party around that time would be ideal.

Bachelorette party

Bachelorette party accommodations

Bachelorette parties are no longer a one-night affair. In fact, a long weekend away is one of the best ways to throw a bachelorette getaway. While you are conducting your detective work in finding out what the bride-to-be likes, you can plan accordingly.

You are going to need a place to rest in between events, but you also don’t want to spend an arm and a leg doing it. Whether she wants to pop bottles all night, or she’s looking for a low key, classy soiree, Miami Beach is full of possibilities.

Here are a few recommendations:

  • Oasis – This beautiful yet affordable home-style accommodations are a cross between a luxury hotel and a comfortable Airbnb. The three rental options offered are perfect for a group of celebrating ladies. The rental property is in close proximity to everything, from the ocean to the airport, with shopping and clubs in between. This is the spot to rejuvenate.
  • Miami Beach Edition –  If you’re looking for a “next level” hotel experience, Miami Beach Edition is the place to stay. Not only will you be surrounded by luxurious ocean views, but you can eat at the Michelin-starred Matador Room, with delicious Latin cuisine, inspired by Spain, the Caribbean, and South American flavors.

The fun stuff

Now that the home base is established, you’ll need a place to party. As you may or may not know already, Miami has no shortage of places to party. Depending on what the bride-to-be prefers, there are plenty of options available.

And we have a few suggestions:

  • The Confidante Hotel – This is a low key, warm up location, reminiscent of Art Deco architecture and old Hollywood glamor, nestled against an oceanic backdrop. Wind down here with ping pong and old school music.
  • The Anderson – When you are ready to heat things up, check out the vibes and drinks at this eclectic spot. And you might want to plan for Karaoke Sundays and the “Miami is an Island” party.
  • Sailo – Take the party to the water, with boats available to rent starting at only $250 for half a day, equipped with a captain. Check the Sailo website for location and pricing to get started.
  • Lapis Spa at FontaineBleau – Labeled as “the most beautiful spa in America” by Martha Stewart, this is a location you should definitely include in the festivities. Bring the girl squad to get pampered in between the fun and sun. With exclusive spa offers, day packages, and massage therapies, there is something for everyone.
